Good tips! Thanks!!

When I finish my Christmas sewing, perhaps I'll get out Mama's Featherweight?! She was DH's grandmother.



They are looking good Nicole and thanks for the tips...every once in a while I use my featherweight to keep it in shape...;)

GReat tips and they are new to me- not just reminders. Thank you so much. I saw pictures on Instagram of your blocks. They are just adorable. Love the colors! CHristmas shopping! You are really organized!!!!

I am anxious to try the holding the thread trick next time I sew. Thank you


Thanks for the Singer needle tip! Just bought a featherweight and am having a bit of trouble, will try new needle!


I'm so happy you're enjoying your Featherweight! I'll definitely use that horizontal pin tip on my current project that has 2 1/2" strips! Were you able to solve the foot pedal problem?


I love to chain-piece or use a small fabric strip as leader-ender for the same reason.

Your two tips are things I have learned over the years, as well, and I will add my voice that they work for me! :)
Seeing your KD project makes me want to go dig out a little kit I have of hers. I love her stuff!


I have used the hold the threads trick for quite some time but I am new to the horizontal pin. I am all over that one now. I, too, love to pin!


I like my little Featherweight but I can't get used to the fact that it doesn't have the automatic thread cutter and the needle up/down feature! I am spoiled!


Great tips. My little featherweight has be so neglected.
